The Rode NT1 is a large-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone featuring their HF61 capsule and gold-plated membrane. It is specifically designed for an accurate midrange response that provides creamy highs and emphatic low end. It also features an internal Rycote Lyre shockmount, which minimizes vibrations and additional handling noise. In addition to being extremely low noise, the NT1 contains completely transformerless circuitry.
